To continue the theme of my last post, April has been a month of many poems, and very little blogging. I've attempted numerous NAPO and NAPO-eque exercises in the past, but this is the only one where I stuck with it 100%, and where most of the daily entries were actually full poems. Having a project seems to help. I'm glad that May will be here soon, but I might keep writing a poem a day for as long as I can.
I do have a few things to report, such as my poem "A Genesis" being picked as a Verse Daily web weekly feature. You can read the poem here at Waccamaw. Thanks, Verse Daily folks, and Waccamaw. The poem is from O Holy Insurgency, forthcoming in 2012 from Black Lawrence Press.
Here's a poem and a little interview for National Poetry Month over at the BLP Blog.
Also, I got to recommend five recent poetry books over at the 32 Poems blog.
And somebody is selling a used copy of Saint Monica on Amazon for $367.02 plus shipping. It will be out very soon. I promise!
